've got to say, you cannot rob the people of detroit of the pension. they worked hard for these pensions. and let me tell you something, if we stand by what they take the detroit pension they will be taking our pensions. so don't think it will happen to us. if they can set a precedent, they will do it to us again. let me just tell you this. inequality is a scourge on our society. and yes, we're talking about low-wage workers making $7.25 an hour. we've got to do something about it. but there's the other side of that, the other side of that is that some people are doing pretty good. so between 1979-2007, a period, although less than 20 years, real income rose by 240% for those at the top 1%. it's a shameful thing. it is a moral issue. and we've got to fight back at this. let me tell you, our economy is capable of producing enough good paying jobs for everyone. [applause] our economy could do it. this economy can do it. but we can't do it while we're getting trade deals that are shipping our jobs overseas, that just leaned on us a few months ago for the south korea the other said it will c

it comes to stars like the texas rangers nelson cruz. when it comes to the detroit tigers, jhonny peralta. are they going to accept that suspension and take it now and if a guy like nelson cruz does that, then he would be able to rejoin his team by the time the playoff starts. the trick there, is the team going to make the playoffs without one of its big stars. if he decides, instead, to fight the suspension and as we said, these guys can play during their appeal, he can help his team during that time, but depending on how the timing works out with that appeal, hey, maybe that suspension kicks in instead right during the postseason. we have to wait and see how these guys decide to handle it. we know how a-rod is going to handle it. he said he will fight everything tooth and nail. >> so interesting to see how this affects the race for the pen pe p peninate. i know you have a question for my next guest here. how did major league baseball and a-rod get to this point? let's go back to january when the "miami news times" broke the story. cnn's john zarrella covered it. >> reporter: called biog

americans died over the city of detroit. only then was that a political will to say we now need to use 21st century technology which we have against the terrorists. so if you look at it right now in a world where they only have to be right 1% of the time we have to be right 100% of the time on defense we should use one of our few at images which is technology and the vast majority of the explosive detection systems in place today aren't capable of detecting either this type of clothing soaked in liquid explosives nor are they capable of detecting even say the surgically implanted bombs or something as basic as the underwear bomber. most are designed to do -- magnetometers detect metal. that is not the explosive itself. usually the only medal medal involved as the detonator so if you are able to designed explosives with no metal detector, you effectively have made that system. we are living in the stone age's on most of the magnetometer technology we are using. our one advantage which is bring for this modern advanced imaging technology to allow us to level the playing field in the last thin

almost 300 americans died over the city of detroit, only then was it political well to see we need to use 21st century technology which we have against the terrorists. so if you look at it right now in a world where they only have to be right 1% of the time, we have to right 100% of time on defense, we should use one of our few advantages which is technology. the vast majority of explosive detection systems in place today aren't capable of detecting either this type of clothing soaked in liquid explosives nor are they capable of detecting even a bottom in the body, the surgically implanted ones or even something as basic as the underwear bomber. why is that? most of these magnetometers, they detect metal. that is not the explosive itself. it's usually the only metal involved is the detonator. so if you're able to design explosives with no metal detector, metal detonator, you effectively invade that system. so we're living in the stone ages on most of the technology we're using. we need to use our wide advantage which is to bring forward this modern advanced imaging technology to allow us
